WhitePaper Help

So now that the season is over, I have decided to try and write a whitepaper for our Linkage Drive System, so our team next year can put one together fairly easily (rookies included).

I have also decided that I will post it on the forums as well, in case other teams would like to use it as a drive train next year, or prototype new versions, or this version, whichever. This is because our team hopes that this drive system will become a drive system that is generally talked about in many brainstorming sessions (like 4wd, tank treads, omni, crab, etc..)

As I have never done a whitepaper before, I am requesting help on what I need to cover. If any of you have seen our drive system, and/or are interested in it/ want to build it, what would you like to know about it? What would you need to know in order to build it effectively? Any other pointers on whitepapers??

Thanks in Advance,
Team 1565

And if you haven't seen 1565's drivetrain in action...

Here's a video of the 5-line hybrid that shows it employed in action:

Re: WhitePaper Help

I'd post things I'd like to see in a whitepaper, but I lack mechanical skills, so I have no idea what'd be useful in one.

Maybe you could design in mounts for encoders.

Re: WhitePaper Help

What I like to see in a white paper:

-Bill of materials
-Drawings of all the parts, especially the complex ones
-Any information you have about the development process
-Lessons learned

The gold standard, in my mind, remains the Nothing But Dewalts white paper; it has everything you'd want to know about the subject.
